The Kingdom of Nirvinia is a place where magical things can happen. Tales from a Magical Kingdom contains four individual stories about life in the kingdom:
1. A Prince looks for a Princess - Prince Leo has to find a princess to help him rule the Kingdom of Nirvinia, but how can he find her?
2. An Adventure on the River - Storms have flooded the roads. Titan, the wisest owl in the kingdom, must find a way to get a wedding cake, the frog band and the guests to the castle in time for the royal wedding.
3. Agatha the Witch to the Rescue - Agatha, the witch, is looking for an assistant and a lonely cat is looking for a good home. In return for Agatha's kindness, the enterprising little cat helps the witch with her spells.
4. Mortimer The Mischievous Wizard - Mortimer the wizard is playing tricks on the animals in the kingdom. Can Prince Leo find a way to stop him?
These amusing tales are intended to convey to the young reader the consequences of their actions and the benefits of kindness. Human emotions are placed on the animals demonstrating how difficult it can be to co-operate with, and consider each other, in a respectful way. When the animals in the magical kingdom unite in their adversity, the reader learns the benefit of teamwork. Each story has a sound plot and concludes with a happy ending when the animals learn to live in harmony with each other, and their environment.
